The Assos toe covers work well for me - winter MTB races!

Thank you, Mark.

If someone were to come out with toe-caps that weighed in at less than 10g for the pair and were more compact in storage, would you be interested?

I only wear toe covers on the days when my toes are really, really cold and my heels are really, really hot. :mrgreen:

Toe covers are for triathletes -- dudes that like to wear parts of various garments. Just get the booties. Much mo' better.... :smartass:

Maybe try the Endura Pro-slick toe cover:

http://www.endurasport.com/Product.aspx ... rod_id=457

They are a thin layer wind barrier rather than neoprene insulation so not as warm. However I found them mostly adequate in Sydney winter which can get down to about 5 deg C on occasion, but mostly around 9 to 12 deg.

They'll wear faster but maybe you can trackstand.

I use the same as Mark, and have just brought the Pearl Izumi elite barrier for really wet days. I have converted from Sugoi to Pearl
